Interactive Anatomy Learning Using Virtual Dissection

Anatomage Table, a first-of-its-kind virtual dissection table helps students of University of Nebraska Omaha's (UNO) School of Health and Kinesiology to better understand the inner workings of the human body and master the anatomy.  The table allows students to learn and discover everything from blood flow to muscle structure to the way certain traumas can lead to medical issues - all hands on. 
"Students love using it because it's completely interactive," explains Adam Rosen, assistant professor in the School of Health and Kinesiology. "You know, I could talk about anatomy and normally you'd see the images we use in the table on a slide but now you can actually interact with it and use your fingers to manipulate the body, peel off layers as you are going and really understand how things work together." 
The table is developed by California-based tech company Anatomage. The product recently released its sixth version in 2018 and has been used in schools, universities and hospitals around the world. 
Rosen, who specializes in athletic training and biomechanics, says the table has already been used in several classes at UNO and will be incorporated more fully in the months and years to come. 
"We're learning new things every day about the table. There are some potential funding opportunities that even come from it in terms of bolstering anatomy education in Omaha and in the region, but there are also some definite ways to improve patient care as well."
